Do you find it hard to choose a category for your hub?

    I have three hubs that I don't think are in the right category, but I'm not sure where else to put them. They are about work, so are currently in employment, though the material is more snippets of funny/sad stories from my working life. How do you choose where to place hubs, and does it really matter in the long run?

      Personally, I think you're on the right track. I have the same problem. I have a hub on Alexander Pope and I had no idea where to place him, category-wise. Ultimately, I ended up placing him in poetry since he was a poet. In the long run, in my opinion, I don't think it really matters. Your hubs will be read in the end.

      Have a good one!

    Hi Innerspin. Yes I have the same problem sometimes, but just put the hubs into the closest catagory I can find.

    At least I'm not alone! I guess it's hard to please everyone.

    I think having to place your hub into a category is a pain in the rear. Because I have yet to find one that matches the subject. Sure, there are some that are fairly close, but, just try looking in those categories to find your hub, it's like looking for a needle in a haystack. And, at last check, hubs were sorted according to hub score from 100 down. So, if your hub has a score of 60, you are going to be looking for it for a long time. I did that once, and after 18 pages of hubs, I gave up.

    I also don't see the point of putting your hubs into groups. Unless someone knows all of your groups, they are most likely going to be unaware of it. Do others find that grouping their hubs has any effect at all? I think it would be better, and get more traffic, if you could add other hubber's hubs to your groups. And, maybe each could benefit from shared traffic.

    I also find it hard to pick a category when I ask a question, in the Q&A, but, my questions are usually pretty off the wall, and not what people normally discuss.

    Just my two cents.
